A very special and beautifully situated property approx. 14 acre country property with four bedroom chalet style house within a walled garden, outbuildings, extensive and well-stocked grounds and outriding in nearby Brechfa Forest
The walled garden at Glangwilli Lodges dates from the 18th / Early 19th Century and was originally the fruit and vegetable garden for the neighbouring Glangwilli Mansion. The current property was built in 2002/3 within the walled garden. Around the property have been planted over 800 trees and shrubs with diverse collections of Japanese Maple, Oak, Conifer and Magnolia, along with fruit trees and other trees. The gardens are currently opened annually for the NGS and are largely self-sufficient with fruit and vegetables. Trees on the Estate are propagated for replacements and used for timber for building and fuel. Most of the plant collections are propagated to sustain the gardens and the vendors have been working to increase the diversity of planting in the wildlife areas, which now have large numbers of birds, mammals insects, reptiles and amphibians. The vendors also utilise part of the main barn as an open loose box for their horse and have enjoyed beautiful outriding in nearby Brechfa Forest over the past nineteen years.
Situated to the north of Carmarthen, the property enjoys a lovely rural location with superb views and low light pollution, which is excellent for astronomy.

Just a quick thank you to you and your company for the help we received from you all. Every conversation with staff members was pleasant and caring. We will definitely recommend Rural Scene to others.
I really don’t know how to thank you for the last 2 months of your time you have been priceless and you are amazing at what you do and have helped to change my life 💝💝💝💝 Due to how amazing you clearly are we have so much trust and respect for you that we are going to be delighted to place our cottage on the market with Rural Scene once we have moved and we would recommend you without hesitation to anybody needing to sell a rural property x
We just wanted to pass on our enormous thanks for the hard work you and your company put into selling our property and helping with the purchase of this house. We also want to thank you for your unfailing support, encouragement and cheerfulness through what was, for us, a very stressful time
I just wanted to pass on my thanks for all your tremendous work during the sale of our property. It's been a bit of a rollercoaster at times but you did a great job in lining up the buyers for us. From the get-go I've felt we're in good hand with Rural Scene. Estate agents don't always get the best press but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone selling their smallholding.
I felt I must write to you both to express my gratitude for the work Abi Rhodes has done on the sale of M......... From the initial meeting she has demonstrated expert knowledge in our type of property that had just been lacking from other agents and filled us with confidence. Throughout the marketing and sale she has been thoroughly professional yet friendly in dealing with the 77 viewings we had to undertake to get to the final sale. Some of the people as we have neared the sale have frankly been rude and in some cases unpleasant and Abi has dealt with them all and shielded us from it completely. She has worked tirelessly to get us finally to completion. I would not hesitate in recommending your company to anyone looking to market the properties you work with.
